I am running on Ubuntu 5.10. I am following the instructions on the MDC page above. I got the error below. When I changed the client.mk file, and changed "autoconf-2.13" to "autoconfi2.13", it worked fine. Looking at the autoconf man page to see how the mapping works, I do not see a reason we would need to specify "autoconf-2.13". Is there a reason? It would be trivial, but I could submit a patch if it is desired. $ !make make -f client.mk build Adding client.mk options from /home/ray/mo/try_20080513_184207/mozilla-central/.mozconfig: MOZ_BUILD_PROJECTS=xulrunner mobile MOZ_OBJDIR=$(TOPSRCDIR)/../mobilebase set -e; \ for app in xulrunner mobile; do \ make -f /home/ray/mo/try_20080513_184207/mozilla-central/client.mk build MOZ_CURRENT_PROJECT=$app; \ done make: Entering directory `/home/ray/mo/try_20080513_184207/mozilla-central' Adding client.mk options from /home/ray/mo/try_20080513_184207/mozilla-central/.mozconfig: MOZ_BUILD_PROJECTS=xulrunner mobile MOZ_OBJDIR=$(TOPSRCDIR)/../mobilebase Generating /home/ray/mo/try_20080513_184207/mozilla-central/configure using autoconf cd /home/ray/mo/try_20080513_184207/mozilla-central; autoconf-2.13 autoconf-wrapper: unrecognized mode '/usr/bin/autoconf-2.13' make: *** [/home/ray/mo/try_20080513_184207/mozilla-central/configure] Error 255 make: Leaving directory `/home/ray/mo/try_20080513_184207/mozilla-central' make: *** [build] Error 2
There is a note that helps on fix this in the configure section of: http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Mozilla_Source_Code_(Mercurial) The page at http://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Build/Fennec did not include this information. I have added it. Where else should this be documented? Or can the need to document this issue be eliminated?
It's named differently on different platforms/operating systems, so no one value will catch everyone. Bug 434075 will have us try several different variations before failing.
